editor's review




Desktop Magnify is a small software application whose purpose is to help you magnify areas of your desktop and take screenshots with the zoomed region.

Simple looks

The GUI looks straightforward so you are not going to invest a lot of time into the tweaking process. You just need to hover your mouse cursor over the desired screen area, and the tool automatically reveals the magnified information directly in the main panel.

Although you cannot appeal to a help manual, you can set up the dedicated parameters on your own because they look highly intuitive.

Configuration settings

Desktop Magnify reveals information about the position of the mouse coordinates in real time in the GUI. What’s more, you are allowed to take snapshots of the zoomed desktop region and copy the photo to the clipboard or export it to BMP file format.

The application gives you the possibility to adjust the zoom level, set the refresh rate, make the primary panel remain on top of other programs, as well as enable or disable the magnifying mode. Preset hotkeys can be employed for faster actions.

Tests have pointed out that Desktop Magnify carries out a task quickly and without errors. It is not a resource hog so you can keep it running in the background without worrying that it eats up CPU and memory resources.

Final words

All things considered, Desktop Magnify comes packed with useful functions for helping web designers and programmers carry out pixel-precise editing tasks. It can also be used for magnifying certain parts from your projects while giving presentations. The intuitive feature package makes it suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
